Confession Tuesday

I've been dreading today. Keeping this short so I won't have the same guilt next week. Today I confess that I haven't been reading books; I've been reading blogs- lots of them. I've been watching the news and listening to NPR, watching the Oscars, and last night I watched two movies: Slum Dog Millionaire and Benjamin Buttons. I've been busy increasing content and updating here and Color Online, running our Black History Contest, participating in a few memes, checking in at our discussion forum, advocating for the library and working.

I have some great books but I've been restless, anxious, busy with tasks. Ready to slow up a bit again and spend hours reading.

If you know how to balance your passions, your life, let me know. If you'd like to comisserate with others at the confessional, check in with January.

I wouldn't worry about it; things tend to be cyclical anyway. :) I'm sure you'll be back to reading soon!

You are not alone....I can guarantee that!

If you're doing other things besides reading books, then maybe you're not supposed to be reading now. Maybe you're supposed to be listening to NPR and reading blogs and other stuff that inform your writing and feed your soul.

The books will be there when you're ready for them.

And now, let go of the guilt. That's why we confess.
